This is a difficult cake to make …

1. Melt chocolate in small bowl over hot, not boiling water- cool.
2. Grease and flour two 9×1-1/2 cake pans; tap excess flour
3. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt onto wax paper;
4. Beat butter until soft in large bowl. Add brown sugar and eggs; beat with mixer at high speed until light and fluffy-5 minutes. Beat in vanilla and cooled chocolate.
5. Stir in dry ingredients alternately with sour cream, beating well with a wooden spoon after each addition until batter is smooth. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour at once in prepared pans.
6. Bake in moderate oven (350*) for 35 minutes or until centers spring back when lightly pressed with fingertip.
7. Cool layers in pans 10 minutes, use knife to loosen then take out of pan to cool on rack.
